The Walker Wood Foundation was established in 2006 by Neil C.W. Wood and his wife Susan following the sale of some of their corporate assets. The Walker Wood Foundation is dedicated to the funding of post-secondary education to candidates who have a high academic standing, demonstrated leadership or similar qualities and whom might have otherwise found it difficult to afford further education.
Both Susan and Neil have travelled extensively throughout Canada in an effort to determine where these funds can be most effectively awarded within the various diverse regions of the country.
Neil's father, a Medical Doctor in the U.K. who attended Medical School on a Carnegie Scholarship, inspired Neil and Susan to establish the Walker Wood Foundation.
The Walker Wood Foundation currently gives awards to numerous Universities and Colleges across Canada.
